Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

I'm still full into AI. Let's see if StarCraft 2 will get me back to RTS. Maybe it could be an idea to team up with someone, so that the effort of creating a complete bot can be split. Like I would focus on integrating machine learning features, while not working on building placement, terrain analy...

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

The attack issue is very well known already.
I've got other goals to achieve, so I'm done with StarCraft for now.

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

I stopped working on StarCraft since the BWAPI lacks in information concerning the knowledge of who attacked and when actually an attack action is done. Now I'm working on my own experimental subject for conducting learning AI research. I wrote an Exposé for this concern https://drive.google.com/ope...

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

My approach considers the immediate actions and their immediate outcomes. The BWAPI has some ugly constraints concerning attacks. It is not known when a projectile or strike is launched, neither is it possible to get feedback about which unit caused the damage. I rely on the assumption that every at...

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

Here are some news. During the last weeks I fixed a bug in my fitness function which prevented punishing moving back accordingly. Now it is easy to reproduce trained behaviors. It usually takes 35 matches (15 minutes total) to train a neural net given the underlying training scenario. The neural net...

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

It looks like that I can completely focus on the fitness function. After gathering data for 100 matches one of the two trained neural nets turned out with this behavior:

The other one would be completely stuck on moving back.

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

I just fixed a tremendously bug. My InpuVector object was just existing once and I passed just its reference to the individual units. So the units would work with information of other units. This mixed up the training data a lot. So this issue is present since the very first training attempts. Hopef...

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

There are some news by now. I revealed a few fresh ideas obscured by the fog of war ;) So the first idea is about treating attacks. I assume now that each attack is successful. There is only a small chance of an attack to miss. That would be the case of an attack being launched towards a dead enemy....

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

For the sake of some result I just composed 120 training examples manually. This is what the result looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13YBM1C4_Ac Outputs are: AttackWeakest, AttackClosest, RunAway Inputs are: friendly unit count, enemy unit count, unit hitpoints, over all friendly hit poin...

Re: Training an artificial neural network for the micro of marines

Right now I'm trying to cover the duration of an attack by just looking at the animation frames of one attack. It won't be frame perfect, but it should reasonable enough to get clean training examples.

I should really look at some bots, thanks for the hint.
